I'm a giver by nature but lately, I have become selfish, focusing more on my wants and needs than on what I can do to help others. I feel that I've become self-centered to the point of being angry at life and I do not like the person I am right now. It's my "what about me" phase that visits every now and again.
I am a believer that it is more of a blessing to give than to receive.
What I'd most like to receive:
A new peace about my life's direction. Not just to stop and smell the roses but to be aware that the roses are there.
Wisdom - to listen to various viewpoints.
